The Islands of
Trinidad and Tobago
Trinidad and Tobago is a dual-island Caribbean nation near Venezuela, with distinctive Creole traditions and cuisines. Trinidad’s capital, Port of Spain, hosts a boisterous carnival featuring calypso and soca music. Numerous bird species inhabit sanctuaries such as the Asa Wright Nature Centre. The smaller island of Tobago is known for its beaches and the Tobago Main Ridge Forest Reserve, which shelters hummingbirds.
Trinidad and Tobago are two islands joined as one nation with very different characters.
Trinidad, near Venezuela, is the busier of the two and the southernmost of all the West Indian islands. In the bustling capital, Port of Spain, you will find some impressive examples of colonial and Renaissance-style architecture, as well as an eclectic cultural mix of Creoles, Africans, Amerindians, Europeans, and East Indians. Popular palm-fringed beaches are nearby, and three forest-cloaked mountain ranges dissect the island, creating some striking landscapes.

Things To Do In
Trinidad and Tobago
Off-the-beaten-track Trinidad and Tobago is an interesting little place. Unlike many of its Caribbean neighbors, this duo of mineral-rich, oil-heavy islets close to the coast of Venezuela does not depend on tourists for survival.
Yes, there are palm-fringed beaches and luxurious hotel resorts; there are misty rainforests and breath-taking tropical jungles, soaring mountain ranges and enthralling colonial cities.
But these aren’t the lifeblood of the archipelago.
Natural gas and oil are what have really brought money to Trinidad and Tobago, meaning the country’s something of a more authentic, less-developed and raw picture of island life than many of its counterparts.
Head in to explore everything from historic fortresses raised by the British to sparkling coral beaches and unexplored reefs.
Come and see charming colonial edifices in the capital, Port of Spain, spot multi-coloured waterfowl flitting through the air, chill on cotton-white sands, and seek out roaring waterfalls in the orchid-spotted wilds.

EXPLORE THE ISLAND
Located just a few miles off the South American continent, Trinidad and Tobago are hilly islands with a few mountains of note. Covering a total area of 5,131 sq.km (1,981 sq mi), the island country of Trinidad and Tobago, consists of two major islands of Trinidad and Tobago, along with many smaller islands.
As observed on the physical map of the country above, Trinidad – the larger of the two islands, is crisscrossed by mountain ranges; the most dominant of these is the Northern Range. It is a rugged area of hills and peaks with the country’s highest point being Mount Aripo (El Cero del Aripo) at 940m (3,084ft) high (marked by a yellow triangle on the map).
The lower Central Range spreads across the central area of the island, and in the far south, a scattered group of hills (The Southern Range & Trinity Hills) border the southern coastline.
Trinidad is drained by numerous short rivers and streams, with the Rivers – Caripo (in the north) and Ortoire (in the south), being the most significant. There are also many large swamp areas.
As for Tobago, there is a Central Ridge running down it’s spine, with some elevations exceeding 600m (1,968ft). The islands have numerous small rivers and streams, and it’s coastline is ringed by bays, beaches and a narrow coastal plain that rises into the hills. Tobago has a number of small islands running along it’s eastern coastline.
